Antigua FloorsWPC LVT flooring is the first actual premium flooring that is 100% waterproof. Several manufacturers claim WPC flooring to be a subcategory of laminate flooring because of its manufacturing process. Although this may be true, the materials used during production are completely different. WPC stands for “wood polymer/plastic composite,” which is a hybrid blend of wood fiber and thermoplastic (ie. polyethylene, polypropylene, or polylactic acid).
Every plank in the Antigua collection is produced with a layer of LVT, or luxury vinyl tile, and a bottom layer of EVA foam padding. EVA foam is one of the most superior foams because it substantially reduces sound, which is great for multi-floor apartment/condominium projects that must comply with sound inspections.
WPC flooring is considered a “floating floor,” which means you’ll only need foam padding to install the floors. Since WPC flooring from the Antigua collection and Green Paradise come with EVA foam padding attached, you won’t have to worry about buying additional underlayment… and with our easy-to-install interlock drop-click system, you won’t have to worry too much about installing either.
